The newspaper describes the Reverie Saigon's design as "unapologetic splendor" and its rooms "ranging from sophisticated modern and classical European to whimsically sassy."
Reverie Saigon on Nguyen Hue street, Ben Nghe ward, District 1, HCM City is set to open this summer.
Each of the 286 rooms features floor-to-ceiling windows, and there are 12 categories and sizes of rooms, the hotel announcement says. Furnishings have been designed by Italian designers Visionnaire, Provasi, Giorgetti and Colombo Stile.
In-house restaurants include R&J Italian restaurant and lounge, named for Romeo and Juliet, which serves traditional Italian food, and the design-heavy Royal Pavilion with classic Asian decor. It serves Cantonese cuisine.
The Long @ Times Square acts as a casual dining and gathering spot, with as many as 10 bartenders mixing decadent cocktails at a 157-foot bar, which stretches from Dong Khoi Street to Nguyen Hue Boulevard.
Rooms range from US$450 to US$550 a night (VND9.8 million-12 million), while suites are priced at US$800 to US$15,000 a night (VND17-320 million).
